OZ|SHOP, our “pop-up” concept shop is the result of approximately 40% dreaming, 10% planning and 50% a leap of faith! With Oz Architects, we are currently working on a large remodel project in Bel-Air that has us in LA for an extended period of time. Over the years we have collected and found some amazing furnishings and objects in our travels to Europe (Our sister company, Antiquities, imports building materials and reclaimed objects from Europe) and were looking for the right outlet to showcase them. In addition, Don Ziebell, Owner and Principal Architect, has been designing a line of furnishings and accessories made from the various materials we bring in (antique oak beams from France, French limestone blocks, slabs of tropical hardwood, steel, etc). We have two master woodworkers in our workshop that allow our ideas go from napkin sketch to reality. Giving new life to old objects and using rustic materials in modern ways, is something we are drawn to, in the designs we do both in projects and in our furniture line.
